An exciting double bill showcasing two releases from the Gearbox label, from the West and East ends – of Europe.
Binker and Moses
Tenor saxophonist Binker Golding and drummer Moses Boyd are two of the most exciting young jazz musicians playing today, recently winning Best Jazz Act at the MOBO Awards 2015.Their ‘Dem Ones’ LP is the jazz debut of the year and was recorded all-analogue live to stereo tape. With a mutual background in Tomorrow’s Warriors they have played together in various large & small format groups including recording & touring as members of Zara McFarlane’s band.
NTS trio is a Czech band of improvisational musicians from very different musical worlds: the contemporary art music composer and keyboard player Michal Nejtek, jazz double bassist Petr Tichý and rock drummer Štěpán Smetáček. The band have found a champion in Basement Jaxx’s Simon Ratcliffe who recorded them at his Atlantic Jaxx studio in London earlier this year. Two of these tracks – Dark Forsage and Seven Up – are now being released as a limited edition 7” single by Gearbox Records.
